|Kids in the house!|

Home soon thereafter to another grandstand greeting of crying, waggy tales, wiggly butts and sheer excitement from Roo and Mako. They went full bore nuts over each kids return to the house. Both kids in tears on the floor rolling around with the pups!

Our scheudles gelled... evening events done around 8/9:00 and I go to bed, kids go out. I get up and swim and by the time I am done they are
Love them to the moon and back and miss them......
